Mike Torchic’s review published on Letterboxd:
Really really enjoyed this film, glad I was able to see it in theaters.
Eddie Murphy's performance in this film is a career best, perfectly embodying Rudy Ray Moore. What really makes his performance though is the incredible script, filled with witty dialogue and some genuine heart.
Simply put, this is a film about a bunch of friends getting together and making a movie, and it works 100%. While some aspects of the film are a bit derivative of other films about making movies, the humor and performances really elevate the finished product.
Definitely going to catch this one again when it comes out on Netflix later this month, really enjoyed it.
